A Thousand Paper Cranes, Slough, UK
Click to book A Thousand Paper Cranes now: from £152 per night A stone's throw from Slough station, this one-bedroom serviced apartment couldn't be more convenient for access into London and the surrounding area. In addition to the stylish and comfortable open-plan living space, you benefit from your private balcony, where you can take in the surroundings over your morning cup of coffee. Spend your days out and about – the high-speed train can whisk you into London Paddington in twenty minutes, while well-to-do Windsor is less than five miles away. Then, after preparing a sumptuous supper in the adjoining kitchen, sink into the cosy corner sofa and binge your favourite Netflix series. If you find yourself with some time on your hands, Slough has many high-street shops, vibrant bars and buzzy restaurants, though you may want to travel slightly further for a genuinely innovative meal. You can find everything within a five-mile radius, from a Francophile three-starred Michelin joint to an independent street food market and everything in between. Sleeps up to 5 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Surrounded by the peaceful half-acre garden, guests staying here are invited to spend a few relaxing days in the countryside, but without having to give up any luxuries or homely comforts. This eco-home is equipped with underfloor heating, a gourmet kitchen, brilliant home entertainment systems, and, best of all, a Swedish-style wood-fired hot tub. Pack your bags, your loved ones, a few great books and your swimming trunks – a trip to Tournesol is guaranteed to be a memorable one. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Tulip, Reading, UK
Click to book Tulip now: from £79 per night In the heart of Reading city centre lies this illustrious top floor apartment, a hideaway on a bustling street. The station’s just around the corner, making trips to London or Oxford a piece of cake. And when we say the city's on your doorstep, we mean it. Need food shopping? An M&S food hall is next door. Forgot to pack a t-shirt? John Lewis is round the corner. Once you're in the flat, it's easy to forget how central you are. Natural daylight, modern design, and cosy furniture make this home a little retreat in the city. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
The Well, Kent, UK
Click to book The Well now: from £214 per night This terraced townhouse has been thoughtfully styled with unique pieces collected on Hannah’s travels around the world. The natural styling reflects the ethos of the host, who has stocked the home with eco-friendly products and curated a sense of calm. The master bedroom is the show-stopper, its roll-top bath invites you to soak whilst sea-gazing over Margate’s seashore. The honesty bar is a welcome treat after a day at the beach or exploring the local boutique shops. Located in the relaxed creative quarter, you're close to the Turner Contemporary gallery and the beach. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Devon or Las Vegas, Devon, UK
Click to book Devon or Las Vegas now: from £200 per night Just because you're staying close to the seaside, it doesn't mean that your home has to be filled with bleached driftwood walls and seashells on every surface. With this recently built and eco-friendly house in the Devon town of Challaborough, the clever use of colour, statement lighting and modern furnishings wouldn't look out of place in any urban environment. What a city flat wouldn't have, however, is the glorious views you get here through the huge floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area, from the outside seating on the deck or up on the roof terrace. When you're ready to see even more of this corner of England, the South West Coast Path is a two-minute walk away and if followed for just over an hour and a half, will get you to Wonwell Beach. Slightly closer to home is Bigbury Beach, which can be reached in eighteen minutes on foot. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
